For me, it all started on a Saturday morning in our Brooklyn apartment doing my usual Saturday morning cleaning. I was scrubbing the walls when I noticed that not only were marks coming off, but a thin layer of black soot was as well. As I walked around, I realized black soot was all over our our apartment and on all of our kitchen appliances. After trying to figure out where it was coming from, I realized that we’d been burning candles every night (not the beeswax good-for-you kind) and the cause of the black soot was from our candles.
At the time, I was just beginning what I call my “health journey” regarding nutrition and lifestyle factors (finding clean water, learning about chemicals in products, etc) , and thought “If this is all over everything in our apartment, we’re also breathing it into our bodies every. single. day.” I researched for awhile about all of the chemicals found in candles and household cleaners (a small list of categories) and found that my favorite candles and cleaning products had so many harmful toxins in them, but had no idea what I would use instead.
I ended up coming across articles about essential oils and instantly found a whole new world of all-natural alternatives that I never knew existed. I decided to try Young Living essential oils because they are so pure (which is important to look for since you put them on your skin, breathe them in, etc), and Young Living ensures that the farming, harvesting, distillation, legal compliance, and quality testing of the essential oils produced are done without compromise. You can read more about Young Living’s Seed to Seal process here. I ordered their starter kit and needless to say, it was love at first smell. Not only did the oils smell like heaven, but I was now on my way to creating a toxin-free home. From lavender in our diffuser at night for a deep, peaceful sleep, to combining frankincense in our skincare, lemon and thieves in our cleaning products, a cozy cinnamon blend that made our house feel like home around the holidays, and so much more.
It’s now been 6 years since I started using essential oils and I’m so grateful I made the switch. Seeing how much they’ve impacted the lives of the people I love as well, I wanted to start sharing more about them on here for all of you. The most important thing to me is that you’re able to come here and find the resources that you need to live the healthiest life possible. So many people are searching for answers to health questions and concerns, and I want to make sure I’m sharing anything and everything that I’ve learned or studied that could help someone else. I hope that once you start (or continue) to use them, you can share them with the people you love and it continues on!
Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts of almost any part of a plant, such as seeds, flowers, fruit, leaves, stems and roots, that are said to improve physical and psychological well-being. Many people suffering from conditions like chronic pain and anxiety are seeking relief from safer, natural home remedies, like essential oils.
The use of essential oils dates back to when the ancient Egyptians first burned incense made from aromatic woods, herbs and spices. By inhaling essential oils, typically done through a diffuser, nerves in the nose trigger powerful brain responses. Similarly, applying them to the skin with a carrier oil allows essential oils to quickly enter the bloodstream by being absorbed through skin tissue.
Manuka: supports the appearance of healthy-looking skin, helps reduce the appearance of blemishes, and can be added to your favorite skincare products.
Jasmine: considered to be exotic and romantic, Jasmine supports the skins appearance, and the sweet, floral aroma relaxes the mind and boosts self-confidence.
Myrrh: has a long history of use in skin care for its moisturizing properties to cleanse dry skin. It was highly regarded in biblical times and has an aroma that brings a deeper sense of spirituality.
Frankincense: mood-enhancer and stress-reducer. Add it to your personal care products to promote a radiant complexion. You can also use this during your reading or meditation to help with grounding and purpose.
Lavender: Loved for its calming and soothing fragrance. When diffused, lavender adds a clean and fresh scent to any room. It’s also a relaxing addition to any body care products or baths.
Roman Chamomile: has a sweet, herbaceous aroma that can help create a calming atmosphere that can be especially useful for restless children.
